Sliabh Coillte Again!

Our fine settled spell of weather is still with us, so I decided to head to Sliabh Coillte for another panoramic painting. Much more hazy today and it was morning with the sun to my left, so a little less atmospheric bluing with distance. I worked on a larger canvas than last time so as to have better control. These kind of scenes require very subtle separation of values and chroma between and within masses, and it is easier to do on a larger canvas as opposed to a pochade size panel.

Spring Morning, Sliabh Coillte

This is a photo of the scene taken before I started:-
